Eagle's War Book Aircraft Carrier HMS Eagle 1939-1942 HMS Eagle was already old when war was declared in September 1939 and her new Swordfish biplanes were soon flying escort to vital Australian troop convoys in the wastes of the Indian Ocean. When the war moved to the Mediterranean, Eagle's meagre air group bolstered by a few Sea Gladiator biplanes held the ring with Cunningham's superb fleet through the dark days of 1940 to 1941. This almost day-by-day account of her battles and actions as seen through the eyes of its former crew members is a fitting tribute to all who served aboard her or flew from her decks.
